I don't read nearly as much as I used to anymore :x

When I do though, I prefer sci-fi and fantasy!

It seems my favorite genre changes every two months or so. I guess I'm as eclectic with reading as I am with music in that, apart from a few genres, I just love reading anything. The only thing I do not read is drama or romance.
For me the most important thing about a book is the author's writing style and if the story is engaging enough and not just another bland copy in its genre. There are so many terrible fantasy and sci-fi books out there...definitely quantity over quality. You need to dig through piles to get to the true gems and sometimes even the ones considered to be classics are a matter of personal taste.
There are some best-selling authors out there that never engaged me or I simply think a series had a horrible end. For instance; I loved Harry Potter but thought the last book was just terribly rushed. Stil love the series but most of the time endings let me down. I sometimes refuse to read the last book in a series because of it :lol:
Not surprisingly I love open or vague endings.

I guess my most read genres would be; fantasy, sci-fi, (popular) science, horror, thriller.

I tend to vary my favorite genre on a regular basis? Like, for a few months I'll only be reading fantasy novels (usually the same ones, again), then the next I'll be focusing on romance (like right now). Paranormal gets tossed in every so often, but historical fantasy does tend to be the majority of what I read
